    I have in the region of 2K to spend on quality speakers for home cinema but there are so many to choose from. Can anyone help me narrow it down a little or recommend something else/better? How do you rate any of these:

    Linn Komponent 5.1
    KEF iQ7 AV
    Monitor Audio RS6 AV
    Pioneer S-V810A
    Acoustic Energy Aelite 5.1
    Dali Ikon 6 5.1
    B & W speakers

    Will be using Arcam DV139/AVR350 and a Pioneer LX508D.

    Thanks for the recommend. Seems that PMCs are a great fit for Arcam. Hopefully they are easier to demo than the Dali Ikon. Really I should trial both systems.

    I'm outside London. Managed to find local dealers for PMC and Dali - though I wouldn't get much change from £2500 if I went for the Ikon system... Very hard to find a dealer with a set of run in Dali Ikons. Guess I'll have to audition both and order them online.

    I got the Linns a couple of weeks ago. They sound excellent and look stunning. Doubtful friends have also been very surprised with the quality in both stereo and in movies.
